      Background

      I discovered by accident that the C* 3.11.6 sections are missing from the trunk version of [NEWS.txt|https://github.com/apache/cassandra/blob/trunk/NEWS.txt] and CHANGES.txt. I've posted the missing text below.

      NEWS.txt

      PLEASE READ: CVE-2017-5929 LOGBACK BEFORE 1.2.0 SERIALIZATION VULNERABILITY
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      QOS.ch Logback before 1.2.0 has a serialization vulnerability affecting the
      SocketServer and ServerSocketReceiver components.Logback has not been upgraded to avoid breaking deployments and customizations
      based on older versions. If you are using vulnerable components you will need
      to upgrade to a newer version of Logback or stop using the vulnerable components. 
      3.11.6
      ======
      
      Upgrading
      ---------
          - Sstables for tables using with a frozen UDT written by C* 3.0 appear as corrupted.
      
            Background: The serialization-header in the -Statistics.db sstable component contains the type information
            of the table columns. C* 3.0 write incorrect type information for frozen UDTs by omitting the
            "frozen" information. Non-frozen UDTs were introduced by CASSANDRA-7423 in C* 3.6. Since then, the missing
            "frozen" information leads to deserialization issues that result in CorruptSSTableExceptions, potentially other
            exceptions as well.
      
            As a mitigation, the sstable serialization-headers are rewritten to contain the missing "frozen" information for
            UDTs once, when an upgrade from C* 3.0 is detected. This migration does not touch snapshots or backups.
      
            The sstablescrub tool now performs a check of the sstable serialization-header against the schema. A mismatch of
            the types in the serialization-header and the schema will cause sstablescrub to error out and stop by default.
            See the new `-e` option. `-e off` disables the new validation code. `-e fix` or `-e fix-only`, e.g.
            `sstablescrub -e fix keyspace table`, will validate the serialization-header, rewrite the non-frozen UDTs
            in the serialzation-header to frozen UDTs, if that matches the schema, and continue with scrub.
            See `sstablescrub -h`.
            (CASSANDRA-15035)
      	- repair_session_max_tree_depth setting has been added to cassandra.yaml to allow operators to reduce
      	  merkle tree size if repair is creating too much heap pressure. See CASSANDRA-14096 for details.
          - Nothing specific to this release, but please see previous upgrading sections,
            especially if you are upgrading from 3.0.
